About the listing

Greg and Jodi Clarke farm Aylesbury and Pekin ducks on their version of the country idyll overlooking Victoria’s Great Ocean Road near the Twelve Apostles. They sell their paddock-reared, real-free-range ‘Great Ocean Ducks’ to some of Melbourne and country Victoria’s best restaurants. 

In 2015 they published a book, Just Duck, featuring duck recipes from the chefs they sell their ducks to as well as stories from their farming adventure. Since December 2016 they have been exporting a small number of ducks to Hong Kong. 

Jodi and Greg knew nothing about ducks (or farming really) before they set off on their agrarian adventure. Jodi was a real estate agent in London’s Notting Hill before becoming a mum, farmer and business owner. Prior to her move to Port Campbell she had never used a shovel.

Greg is a journalist – for some 7 years he has been writing a column for Farm magazine, part of The Weekly Times newspaper, about their farming adventure - but also does the jobs on the farm his wife tells him to.

 If he’s lucky, Madi and Milla, Greg and Jodi’s daughters, help him.

Great Ocean Ducks are available on the menus of Forage on the Foreshore in Port Campbell, Timboon Railway Shed Distillery in Timboon and Brae Restaurant in Birregurra.

Just Duck . the farm . the chefs . the cookbook is available locally from the Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre, Forage on the Foreshore, Grass Roots Deli and Cafe and Timboon Railway Shed Distillery (Timboon)
